We moved to Lexington SC last year. Our Daughter started attending LHS as a freshman. The school offered an amazing amount of honors and AP classes! To say we were happy was an understatement... Great atmosphere and wonderful faculty!!! That was LAST YEAR 2012-2013 Now, one year later we are extremely frustrated with the lack of classes available. It appears that most of the Honors classes my daughter wishes to take aren't offered at LHS only at RIVER BLUFF. I HAVE A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THIS!! The website High school website is now outdated and the food program has gone down hill to the point my child has elected to start taking her lunch for the first time in years! (Stale and leftovers art what i expect) Yet new school has multiple food options available. I see this schools overall rating dropping considerably if the district continues to SHORT CHANGE THE FUNDS $$ AND HONORS/AP CLASSES FOR LEXINGTON HIGH SCHOOL. Truly so very sad......

We just moved to the area from the Austin, Tx area. First problem that we encountered was that my daughter's credits from her former HS would not transfer and would be lost. This is because LHS semesters are structured differently than my daughter's HS in the Austin area. They were extremely unwilling to help in this situation. So much so that we were sent to another HS in the Lexington area that would accept her credits. We did just that and my daughter is now more than happy at River Bluff HS. In the four days that my daughter attended LHS did one student even look at her much less talk to her. She has been welcomed with open arms at River Bluff HS. Thank goodness that our temporary apartment made my daughter attending River Bluff HS possible. We have now bought a house in the River Bluff zoned area and are much happier because of it!

This school is by far the best high school that my children have attended. I moved to SC from Southern California 7 years ago and my children have been given a great opportunity to learn with the great teachers at Lexington High. The parents involvement in their childrens lives is just wonderful to see here in this great state. Children graduating from Lexington High School will definately be going places in life and contributing to making this world a better place. Thank you Lexington High School and it's teachers. You are the BEST.

Great school put the bus situation is unacceptable. How could they possibly plan so poorly as to have 3 kids to a seat on buses, then STILL have kids having to ride standing up and kids on the bus for over an hour and 1/2. Quality? I think not.

This is one of the best, if not the best, public school in the state at preparing students for college. The very first day that I set foot on the campus of a major, academically recognized and respected, 4 year university, I felt right at home. Lexington prepared me well, and far better than my new peers.

As a graduate of Lexington High School, I can say with confidence that I feel more prepared than many of my other friends in college. Now that I'm attending the University of South Carolina, I'm especially thankful for the wonderful education and preparation I got from Lexington High.

I think that while Lexington has some great qualities, and I'm glad to have attended, there is much improvement to be done. On a state level, we are wonderful, but compared to the rest of the nation, we fall way behind the curve. As an honors and AP student, I was encouraged by guidance counselors to not apply at out-of-state schools. A shift in focus from being the best in the state to being able to compete nationally would do wonders for the school, because the students are certainly capable, if given the right leadership.

This is definitely a quality school if you are serious about academics. My son has taken CP classes throughout his four years and maybe a couple of honors courses, and he will be graduating this year. There is no doubt in my mind he is ready for college. He has also played baseball all four years and will be ready to play at the college level as well. Lexington not only prepares college bound children but also has a wonderful Vocational Center for those who intend to find jobs out of high school. LHS is serious about their academics/athletics from my experience and I am very satisfiled with the education and social life my son has expeerienced.

Lexington High School is one of the best schools in South Carolina. The teachers and staff help each student as much as possible. The programs and activities are open to everyone interest. Our parents play a big part in our school and they help with fundraisers. This is school has little or no discipline problems. The environment is great to learn and be successful if you want to. 9 out of 10 students graduate and go to the higher level of learning.
